The Vikings advance to state turning in a 345 ahead of Mount Vernon who also advances to state with 350. Washington was third also with a 350. Benton Community was 4th with a 363 and Keokuk was 5th with 386. Landon Pace of Benton Community qualified for state as an individual placing 4th turning in an 84.
